Gibbons are apes and almost all gibbon species are endangered. Currently two of the worst threats to this wonderful primate group are bush meat and the pet trade, especially in Vietnam. It is estimated that for every gibbon baby captured, 10 wild gibbons - 10 mothers and 9 babies - were killed in an attempt to harvest the one infant, who will be caged for life and neglected once it is older.
